Ownership cost

What used BMW i8 coupe will I get for my budget?

The good news is you can pick up one of the early i8s for around £37,000, this for a car with a reasonable mileage for the year and a full service history. Up the ante to between £40,000 to £45,000 for more 2015 or 2016 examples. Expect to spend between £45,000 and £55,000 on a good 2017 or 2018 car, and around £60,000 to £65,000 on a 2019 or 2020 one.

Car tax

If you buy an example registered before 1 April 2017, it doesn’t cost a penny to tax. Beware the new tax rules, though from beyond this date – any i8 registered after this date gets whacked with the new, higher flat rate of tax. To find out more about road tax costs, click here.  

Servicing

As far as servicing goes, i8 comes as standard with a Service Inclusive package that covers servicing costs for three years or 36,000 miles. It’s also worth knowing that although the i8 receives BMW’s standard three-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, the battery is covered for eight years or 100,000 miles.
